Lagoon life: Saudi Arabia’s latest form-busting resort keeps you hanging

Neom’s rendering of the Treyam development
Neom this week unveiled another resort to add to its list of high-concept sustainable tourism projects.

“Treyam” occupies a tidal lagoon at the southern end of the Gulf of Aqaba, but doesn’t touch the water.

Instead, it takes the form of a bridge over it, with the structure’s upper surface 36m above the waves. 

US firm Mark Foster Gage Architects designed it.

  • Hear them explain their rationale:

The resort’s 250-rooms have panoramic views of the lagoon, thanks to their glass floors and ceilings, as does the 450m-long rooftop infinity pool.

Holidaymakers will be able to sail, go scuba diving and enjoy what Neom describes as “extensive technology-enhanced health and wellness offerings and fitness amenities”.

Its unveiling follows the recent announcements of sustainable tourism initiatives across the Gulf of Aqaba, namely Leyja, Epicon, Siranna, Utamo, Norlana, Aquellum, Zardun, Xaynor, Elanan and Gidori.
